Holiday Glazed Roast Pork with Apples


  • 1 (4-pound) boneless pork loin roast
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons TABASCO® brand Original Red Sauce
  • 1 large white onion, cut in half and cut into 1/2-inch thick slices
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 large red cooking apples, cored and sliced
  • Rosemary sprigs (optional)


Preheat oven to 325°F.

Sprinkle pork loin roast with salt; place fat-side up in open roasting pan. Roast pork 1 1/2 hours or until the thermometer inserted in center reaches 160°F.

Meanwhile, combine red wine vinegar, sugar, water, ketchup, soy sauce, cornstarch and TABASCO® Sauce in a 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat until mixture thickens; stirring constantly. Boil 1 minute. Set aside half of this sauce mixture.

During the last 30 minutes the pork is roasting, brush pork several times with half of the sauce mixture. When the pork has finished roasting, let stand 15 minutes for easier carving.

Cook onion in butter and oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add apple slices; cook 5 minutes or until onions and apples are tender. Toss apples and onions with remaining sauce mixture.

To serve, place pork on a large platter. Arrange onion and apple mixture with pork on platter. Garnish with rosemary sprigs if desired.

Makes 8 to 10 servings.

    i cooked this pork loin in a ninja cooker. i browned the outside in the ninja with salt, pepper and garlic for about 10 minutes a side and the place the ninja at 325 for 25 minutes with about an eighth inch of chicken stock at the outset for moisture.

    the ninja cooked and crisped the loin up perfect and the glaze is complimentary with the lean pork....garnished the loin with the apples and onions.

    the glaze has a zesty sweetnes and was delicious. served with rice, an okra and tomato mixture, black eye peas and biscuits.
